NYC Cop Recorded Knocking "Critical Mass" Biker On His Ass

They may put up with the antics of Critical Mass in Seattle but in New York? Not so much.

Alas, shoving a biker and filing what might be an inaccurate, to be kind, arrest report is not kosher either.

A rookie cop - the son of a highly respected New York City detective - has been stripped of his badge and gun after being caught on video viciously attacking a bicyclist who was part of a Times Square demonstration. '

... What the video doesn't show is (Officer Patrick) Pogan arresting Long for attempted assault in the third degree, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct - charges that kept the Bloomfield, NJ, man behind bars for 26 hours before his release late Saturday.

Adding insult to injury, the criminal complaint drafted by Pogan bears little resemblance to what was witnessed by onlookers and recorded on video.

In court papers, Pogan accused Long of purposely swerving his bicycle to block traffic and then using it as a weapon to run down the officer, knocking him off his feet and causing a "laceration" on his forearm. "You are pawns in the game. I'm going to have your job," Long told Pogan, as he flailed and kicked his arms and legs, according to the complaint.

Please, if any of you morons are coming into NYC for the big meet up, leave the bikes at home and take a cab to get around town.
